Abutilon (flowering maple) is an exotic hibiscus relative that has been grown for ages as a houseplant and as a garden border plant. Mostly grown as an annual, Abutilon is a low growing woody subshrub that acts as an herbaceous perennial in colder climates.
The summer and fall-flowering abutilon delights gardeners and hummingbirds with its pendant bell-shaped flowers available in an array of rich colors including yellow, orange, pink, red and even bicolor flowers. Abutilon looks great planted in mass or weaving throughout a mixed border. Flowering maple is also great in a container or hanging basket where its downward facing flowers can be viewed face to face. The key to success with abutilon is good winter drainage. Plant them high and dry (in the winter) and they will delight you for years in your garden.
IP009 Bellvue Mix ( Abutilon hybridum )
This lovely Flowering Maple has early blooms and vivid colors, the blooms, when full-sized, will stand out from across the garden! This flowering maple plant will provide brilliant shades of red, orange and yellow from spring until frost. You just can't find an easier, more beautiful source of color indoors or out which can be grown from flower seeds! The flowers are 3 inches across and have a crepe-paper feel, somewhat like Hibiscus. You won't believe how many flowers you get on each and every plant.
Flowering Maple is also called Parlor Maple because it makes a lovely house plant, and this variety can also be used for containers. Very free-blooming and easy to care for, it asks for only a sunny window and a periodic feed. It is superb for the garden, too. Low enough to edge a pathway or dazzle in the front of the border, it's a nice accent plant for the patio as well and so easy to grow from flower seeds. Tolerant of partial shade where summers are long and hot, it grows quickly and lushly from seeds. You will love this garden standout!
